The Artistic Canvas of a Kalamkari Silk Saree



What can be more beautiful than an art that can be draped on an Indian woman! An Indian saree offers all the pleasure of flaunting various forms of cultures and art in motion. Sarees are like a blank canvas which artisans fill with their creativity and imagination. India is a land where diverse forms of arts originated and they have been a source of design inspiration for the Indian clothing and design industry for ages. And one such form of art created on textiles is handmade Kalamkari paintings. Kalamkari is created using natural colors and dyes on fabrics with a pen which gives it a raw appeal and at the same time keeps it close to nature. The designs are inspired by mythological paintings, flowers, leaves, deities and much more. A Kalamkari saree is a favorite piece in the wardrobe of an art lover and saree wearer. A basic Kalamkari sari is made on woven fabrics like silk and cotton and is painted with natural dyes in rustic designs. With times, the style and designs of Kalamkari sarees are also evolving to make them not just a regular wear but also a choice for special occasions like parties and weddings.

She has paired her sari with a sleeveless saree blouse and draped it in a feminine pleated style. The natural colors of the saree are blending perfectly with surroundings and making her look all the more ethereal. A pair of silver gold plated jhumka earrings added the right kind of spark to her ethnic style.
